LensCulture Emerging Talent Awards 2017

Klompching Gallery is pleased to present the photographs of the 50 laureates of the 2017 LensCulture Emerging Talent Awards!

The LensCulture Emerging Talent Awards are open to photographers of all ages, from all cultures around the world, and all genres of photography. The international jury panel—composed of publishers, gallerists, artistic directors, critics and an award-winning photographer—carefully considered the range of submissions, which were sent by photographers in over 160 countries. The bar was set extremely high: as Nazraeli Press founder and juror Chris Pichler said, “I was deeply impressed with the quality and seriousness of the work.” But after extended deliberation and discussion, these distinctive, remarkable photographic works rose to the top.

This is a selection of the strongest and most memorable work submitted to the competition this year. Here you’ll discover serious documentary and photojournalism projects, as well as pure aesthetic celebrations of the interplay of light, color, form, and texture. Some award-winning series are profoundly personal, intimate, or poetic. Others winners have chosen to explore inventive uses of old analog processes, conceptual approaches, or sculptural still-life to express their visions.

The exhibition will be on view until March 17.
